    Pedersoli vs Parker Hale

    How do these two replica makers compare. What Iím thinking about is a 1853 Enfield.
    Thanks

    I can't speak about the Pedersoli, but I have a complete set of PH '53. '58 and '62 all are beautifully made and shoot very well. I have a number of Pedersoli Sharps which are also well made.

    Hold Still Varmint; while I plugs Yer!

    IF the Parker Hale is a first generation made in Birmingham, hands down winner and first choice. Otherwise Pedersoli is the choice.

    I shoot two first gen Parker’s in North South Skirmish competition, one in musket and a musketoon in carbine class. Both guns are solid 2moa shooters.

    My Parker-Hale Volunteer is a wonderful, very accurate rifle. Also, I like British rifles, so it's nice to have a British rifle that was made in Great Britain.

    I have both an original PH 1853, made in England, and a Pedersoli 1853. Both are incredibly accurate; with service loads, the PH required a new tall sight to zero at 100 yards, but the Pedersoli was zeroed right out of the box.
